It’s going to be one hell of a game at Croke Park on Saturday. The Irish are resurgent, and the Welsh are about 25 per cent away from really beginning to look like the real deal.
The crunch man-to-man showdown will be between Martyn Williams and Ronan O’Gara. If the Welshman can shut O’Gara down, Wales will win. If not, it’ll be Irish eyes smiling at the end of the game.
How refreshing that two teams playing attractive rugby both have a chance for glory. England should take note – you can play expansive, skilful rugby and win Test matches.
Shane Williams to score again? You can bet on it.
